    Default alternate box alignments

    yeah, so you know how you can make a ported box with a bit of a bump in the frequency response, and how you can choose the location and magnitude of said bump? is there any way to do it the other way round? can you make a box with, say, a -3 dB cut at say 55 Hz with a high q-factor? see, i have this really bad resonance right there - and ONLY right there, to within 4 Hz on either side - that i'd really like to get rid of without resorting to a very expensive EQ... ideas?

    Im not sure but couldnt you build the box tuned to a lower frequency? Wouldnt that smooth out the response hump you have at 55?

    perhaps... the resonance isn't the box (it's sealed), but rather in the car...

    okay, how bout this... i build a ported box with a bit of a hump (maybe 2 dB) at like 28-30 Hz, and i have a band of eq at 80 Hz, and i'd put that at about +2 dB... so combine that with the car, and i should have something relatively level from 28 to 80 Hz... how's that sound?
